Good Evening Pam

Radio shack has a listing of Scanner resources here:
Radio Shack Realistic Scanner Manuals The materials for the Pro 58 are here
http://support.radioshack.com/support_electronics/8570.htm and gives access to specs, parts list, features, and a guide to scanning. It's very mid-20th century in appearance, including using type-writer style fonts.

Hoping this helps!

How to enter codes on uniden bc60xlt handheld?


Hi, first, you can only listen to analog radios on this scanner, so if you local or state public servants went to digital, you are out of luck. You can still receive National Weather Service, most railroads, ham radio operators and any small town police and fire that have remained on analog VHF and UHF. Do a Google search and you can get the instruction book for the radio. As far as channels, search for Radio Reference dot com and search for your state and county. That will list the channels to enter into your radio. Good luck and have fun.

Need a manual to program radio freq for a RCA four band veractor tuned scanner, this is not a gps but a radio scanner model # 16S400


Please excuse me if I've already answered your question -- it sounds familiar. The RCA 16S400 is a 70's-vintage crystal based scanner that covers the VHF-Low, VHF-High, and UHF bands using frequency-specific crystals. It is not programmable, but rather requires one crystal for each frequency to be scanned/tuned. It uses Regency-type crystals which can usually be found on eBay at reasonable prices.

Need a free printable user manual for Bearcat scnner BC142XL


Its so easy to use you really don't need a manual for the Uniden BC142XL scanner.

Turn it on. Push the "MANUAL" button to stop it from scanning.

Push number 1, then push "MANUAL" again. This should leave you on channel one.

Using the keypad enter the frequency you want to monitor, then push "E." Press "REVIEW" at anytime to see what frequency is programmed there. If the review button flashes 000.0000 on the LED readout display, you might be entering an invalid frequency. Refer to the list of acceptable frequencies in the Frequency Range Bands below.

Push "MANUAL" to step to channel number two. Enter the frequency. Push "E." Push "MANUAL" to step to channel three. Repeat this process until all the (10) channels are full, or you've run out of frequencies to enter.

Push "SCAN" to start automatically scanning the frequencies. The
radio will stop when it hears someone talking, and resume scanning two seconds after the conversation has stopped.

Frequency Range Bands:

20 to 29.7 MHz (10 Meter "Ham" Band)
29.7 to 50 MHz (VHF Low Band)
50 to 54 MHz (6 Meter Amateur Band)
136 to 144 MHz (Military Land Mobile)
144 to 148 MHz (2 Meter "Ham" Band)
406 to 420 MHz (Federal Government Land Mobile)
420 to 450 MHz (70cm "Ham" Band)
450 to 470 MHz (UHF Standard Band)
470 to 512 MHz (UHF "T" Band

If this helps, please take a moment to give us a rating -- and a rating of "very helpful" would be greatly appreciated.

Cannot install omnipage se. wizard interupts process


When unistalled the previous Omnipage SE 4.0 and try to install new update vresion, an error message keep poping up saying a previous version of Omnipage is still installed in the computer and can not install the new version. No more trace is found for old version in Add/Remove screen. The problems are in the registry area. Just run regedit (export the registry as backup) and look for Scansoft under the software directory. Deleted all the Scansoft omnipage traces then restart the computer will solve the problem.

Looking To Buy A good scanner? Is The BCD396T The way to go?


A good scanner? Hmm... too many to list. But the #1 on my list is a Realistic PRO-2006 gapless frequency scanner. This scanner has no limitations to what it can scan. It scans HF/FM/AM/VHF/UHF/Air/TAC/Marine VHF/GMRS/CB/SSB/USB/LSB/WX. Hell, it even scans the FM and AM bands (the music bands). It's frequency range is up in the 1300 MHz range and is probably the only scanner you'll ever need. If it's too pricey, my second recommendation is a Regency MX4000. The Regency MX4000 is a good little scanner with a 950MHz range. It is not gapless however. It has 20 Memory channels and scans AM/FM/UHF/VHF/Air/Marine VHF/Mobile Phone/WX bands. It may be hard to find one because Regency went out of business a while back, but if you do find one, it may be worth your while.

Best Regards,
Gavin93

Unkown functions


Lo Hi Air UHF refer to separate bands to be monitored.

25 50 75 are the KHZ steps that can be set for searching.

Using these functions can limit what is found either during close call or during search. By switching to 25 50 or 75 in will search in those size jumps. IE in 25 155.000 155.025 155.050 155.075 etc.
